    Want to keep it simple this year? These fuss-free banana pancakes are a joy to make and a joy to eat, too. Top with whatever you like; we’ve chosen blueberries and more bananas to continue the fruity theme, but they’d be delicious with mixed berries, nuts and seeds. Here’s how to make them: 

    • 2-3 ripe bananas
    • 2 eggs
    • Blueberries
    • Maple Syrup
    • Butter, for frying


    • Whisk together 2-3 (200g) mashed ripe bananas with 2 eggs to make a batter.
    • Stir in 25g blueberries, saving 25g to serve.
    • Gently fry 3 tbsp of batter in hot butter for 30 secs – 1 min each side.
    • Stack up the pancakes and top with blueberries, half a sliced banana and maple syrup
